our stay at this hotel was fantastic, nice pool & service from all the staff, this hotel is in the centre of bangkok & you really dont need a tuk tuk to get around as the shopping markets are all in walking distance if you look at the hotel map & locality the main shopping centres mbk etc are with in a 3mile radius from the hotel eg 25minutes walk best to tuk tuk there walk back or do a tour to madame tussards & walk back as you are going to pass all the main malls etc on foot heaps of fresh food on the way etc
Unique Quality: this is our fourth time at this hotel
Directions: pratunam area
This was an excellent hotel so central to the shopping, there is shopping under the hotel and fantastic markets one minutes walk from the hotel.
Lots of Australians stay here, not that it mattered to us, the Hotel has a real atmosphere of being in Thailand (not a western feel) which is what we wanted to experience.
the food was good and service excellent.
Unique Quality: close to great shopping!
Hello all, I stayed in this ok "a bit dated hotel" but I utterly enjoyed the comfort and cleanliness. The staff were always helpful and charming. Yes the breakfast might be a bit över-cooked" but all hotels catering for a lot of people the food is always not easy to master. The pool on the 4th floor was very quaint and considering the price I paid I couldn't have asked for better, to come home to a quiet cool hotel room after the mayhem in the streets. Old-style can have it's charm, it slows you down. And come on it's not THAT "passé". Anyway I enjoyed it thoroughly it and am well traveled. Cheers globe-trotters

I've stayed at the Indra Regent probably 8 times over the past years en route to the UK from Australia each way. Some of the reviews I'v, e seen are hardly generous, more mean spirited I would suggest. The hotel is fine for what you need. It's clean comfortable and friendly. For what you are paying Max $80 you couldn't get a shoe box in NY or London. It's great value. The location for clothes shopping is unbeatable, Pratunam Markets straight across the road. I've seen plenty of retailers from Sth Africa stocking up big...clothes are so cheap..but I'll bet the markup back in Sth Africa is 500% on top!
The best thing is the Chandlier Bar on the mezzanine floor, terrific entertainment, great laugh, very friendly and the best Irish coffee in the world ( with entertainment). I can't speak highly enough for a tourist - mid range hotel it's great value for money. Don't take any clothes, or luggage. Buy them while you're here and then stay at the Sheraton on your next trip if you want.
Unique Quality: Pool is a great retreat from the hectic noise and traffic.
Directions: Pratunam Market (clothes) straight across the street. Very handy
The nicest thing about Indra is that all the shopping is so close, it's basically in front of the hotel! The rooms are a bit old looking, but clean. The breakfast buffet is ample, but in an outdoor setting, so best come early when it is still cool. There is a pool, but I never used it. Nearby massage areas are priced reasonably well.
Unique Quality: Near the shopping areas.
The hotel had undergone a refurbishment from our last visit and the improvements were noticeable.
Excellent locations and fantastic staff. Very helpful when dealing with injuries-
Unique Quality: Pool wasn't anything special but it was relaxing after a day out in bangkok. Dance show and dinner was enjoyable. Breakfast was an absolute delight. The staff even made a special party cake for both times we have had a birthday at this hotel. Little touches like that make a holiday.
Very easy to get around from.
I would not recommend this hotel. It was booked by our travel agent, as it was located near all the shopping areas, which was our only reason for visiting Bangkok after visiting Phuket. The hotel is in dire need of a refurbishment. The passages were noisy, pillows were like slabs of bricks and the breakfast was cooked about 2 days before serving. I do not have ONE good comment for this hotel. I will NOT stay there again.
Unique Quality: Nothing to to add.
The lobby smells but its tolerable... you can hear the next room when they flush their toilets.. but overall.. with the price we paid.. I guess its tolerable.. You didnt go to Bangkok to stay in your hotel anyway :-)
Everything we were looking for at a reasonable price.Rooms clean, breakfasts good, with very good variety.Staff have always been friendly. I have stayed at this hotel on 3 of my 6 visits to Bangkok. Central location, but walk up to the Skytrain, as it is quicker than taking a taxi.
Unique Quality: Centrally located, not far from World Trade Centre and Skytrain station. Pratnum market right next door.
Directions: Pratnum area...Good clothes shopping area
We booked a triple room before travelling and were told that we would have Queen size bed and a single, on arrival the single turned out to be a trundle/fold-away bed.
The Hotel is in need of a makeover, the halls have a stale smell. The rooms are just adaquate, with a fairly noisy air conditioning, toilets are noisy and hear when other rooms flush.
The location is good for shopping if you want to stay local, to use the train system its is a good 15 min walk to one or the other station, with the climate and polution being what it is, this is not that pleasant.
Breakfast's were the standard buffet type on an open air patio.
There is a shopping plaza below the hotel, which is fairly ordinary.
The front of the hotel is an excellent place to a catch a taxi or tuk tuk, dont stand still to long as you will be offered all the "other" differing services available in Bangkok.
There is a 7-11 across the street for fresh milk if you get sick of creamer.
The hotel appears to cater for a certain southern asian clientele. I assume there was an Indian Tailors convention being held at the time of our visit.
Unique Quality: None. All very tired.
Directions: Shopping District
Average hotel. Location quite central.
Rooms are very standard, nothing special.
Breakfast buffet = terrible
Good and friendly service
Swimming pool, spa etc.
Unique Quality: Very close to a lot of shopping areas
Directions: Pratunam area
The room itself wasn't too bad, clean, comfortable bed, good aircon and big enough, smell was ok as well. The service was excellent, our 2 sons were in a different room which wreaked of cigarette smoke when we got there, I complained about it and they gave us another room which was closer to ours, no problem at all. The included breakfast was of a poor standard, typical American style, plenty of it, just a poor standard. The hallways smelt of old carpet and musty, but our 2 rooms were fine, good water pressure and hot shower.
Unique Quality: Location, location, location, this motel is right on top of a great shopping arcade and across the road from the largest clothing market in Bangkok, absolutely huge, everything on offer. 7-11 across the road, plenty of food halls in nearby shopping centres and a few good restaurants nearby as well, money exchange, ATM's and fast food nearby also. For the price it is ok for a few nights, but no longer.
Stayed at Indra last Nov 2007 for 5 days... if you want shopping, this is the place to stay..rooms and prices are ok..there are jsut three disadvantages: 1. Breakfast is buffet, but the menu is the same everyday; 2. Far from BTS..nearest is around 20-30 minutes away... it takes thsi long to get to the station partly becasue it is so crowded downstairs, it takes time to walk towards the station; 3. taxi? yup, there are many, but the street is one way..away from most places you may want to go to.. so best advice is to go to platinum mall area and take a taxi from there.
Whenever I am in Bangkok I like to stay in the Pratunam area because of the Pratunam markets, the Platinum wholesale mall, Plantip computer mall, and closeness to Central World Trade center, MBK, Siam Paragon etc. The Indra Regent is wonderfully located for this. The rooms are generally nice & clean but the bathrooms can show a bit of wear as the hotel shows its age. It also has a mall connected to it which I find is the best place to buy a suit case!
Unique Quality: Try the Sala Thai restaurant for some classical Thai dance entertainment.
I do not understand how people stay in this hotel. It stinks, the humidity is all over the place. After a grandious lobby the rooms are not uptodate, the AC makes a noise.....
The location is good if you are looking for 2 $ t-shirts and cheap souvenirs. I would not recommend it to anyone. Better go to another newer hotel.
Unique Quality: good locations for those of you that like to be in the middle of the "cheap souvenir shop" .
The stuff speaks excellent english. When exiting the hotel there are many people offering you several services, massage, taxis, drivers....

Any red shirt camps near Indra Regent Hotel?
It's just around 15 minutes walk to red shirt camp in Rajprasong inter section.
i just came back from bkk last night and i stayed at baiyoke (pratunam area) and i had no problems whatsoever with safety. shops are still open, although some are closed for a few days due to songkran holidays. i still saw the red shirts passing by here and there but it's still pretty much safe.
